DIY Photo Corners

Hello lovelies,

a little while ago, when working on a small DIY favour for a pen pal I realized I ran out of photo corners but the project I was working on definitely required some. It was a Sunday and as shops are closed on Sundays in good ol' Germany taking the tram downtown and buying some at the local Idee shop was out of question. So I decided to craft some. And truth to be told, photo corners are darn simple to make!

Check out the video below for instructions:

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Planner Spreads May & June 2017

Hi beautiful people,

here's a short show and tell of my planner spreads for May and June. This time I'm not sharing the actual process of creating the spreads, I'm just sharing the finished spreads.

I am currently thinking about moving into another planner or journal. Traveler's notebooks for example have caught my attention lately. But I haven't decided yet whether or not...
Are you still using the same 2017 journal or have you switched to another one yet? Or maybe you abandoned planning altogether? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for stopping by!

Water Color Mandala

Hello everyone,

a great while ago I was gifted a coloring book by my friend Kristin. Every once in a while I take it out for a couple of hours. Last weekend I decided to start coloring one of the various mandalas and once I got into the spirit of it I simply couldn't stop anymore. I think I spent almost 4 hours that day with my water colors and this wonderful coloring book.

This is how it looked at the end of Saturday:

On Sunday I again spent a couple of hours coloring. The result:

Then over the course of the last days I finalized the mandala:

Maybe not perfect but it was definitely quite a lot of fun :)

What do you guys think about coloring books? Do you own any and if so how often do you color in them?

Join me for some Live Crocheting!

Hello everyone,

so I just scheduled my first live-crafting/crocheting session, the first Paper, Wool & Yarn crafting/crocheting live stream :)

Mark your calendars:
Today, 8th of March 2017 at 7PM CET // 1PM EST // 10AM PST

I know it's on a very short notice, sorry for that.
But anyways, I'll be hooking a little flowery something, nothing fancy. If you wanna join me, here's what you should prepare until we're going live:
  • Bookmark & Subscribe to my YouTube channel to get notified
  • Grab some colorful yarn - preferable in Spring or Summer colors plus a neutral one, you won't need a whole skein of each - plus a matching crochet hook
  • Print out this Pattern
  • Have some scissors as well as a needle handy 

See you later :)
